Custom Crating

At I Love Moving, we treat your valuables like our own, providing top-notch custom crating solutions tailored to each unique item you’re moving overseas. Our expert team crafts secure, personalized crates, ensuring that everything from your delicate antiques to your invaluable art pieces is protected every step of the way.

With our bespoke crating services, we put your mind at ease, knowing your possessions are cradled in safety and care. Trust us to give your treasures the special treatment they deserve.


No matter which option you choose—international moving by sea or international moving by air—I Love Moving can provide you with custom crating. Although we handle every item professionally and with the utmost care, there’s still room for possible damages, both caused by human error and unforeseeable factors.

For these reasons, we made sure to look at and cover every possible angle when it comes to shipping your valuables. Whether these are antique, fragile, or sentimental items, there’s still a way to ship them to any part of the world without having to worry about their safety during transit.


Anybody who’s shipping expensive or breakable things is worried about their condition once they are packed and ready to go. That is why the package must be just right and secure enough for a long trip. Any kind of valuable furniture piece or expensive artwork requires special attention, and professional movers at I Love Moving know that. We will make a custom crate out of wood or cardboard for items made of fragile materials such as:

  • Marble,
  • Glass
  • Stone
  • Porcelain.

Even though some of these materials may seem sturdy, they are still prone to scratches or dents, and we don’t want any of that to happen to your valuables, let alone fall damage. Our crates are made out of the best heat-treated stamped wood. More importantly, they are always custom made to size. That also means that we won’t use the same materials twice. Everything that we use to cover and secure your items will be brand new.


Crating an item isn’t just placing it into a wooden or cardboard crate. Before placing the item into a designated crate, we make sure that it is well-packed and secured. We use various materials such as packing paper, bubble wrap, shrink wrap, foam packing peanuts, etc. After the carefully packed item is placed into a crate, we also make sure that it doesn’t move within its container by filling the crate with extra paper and foam peanuts. This way, we are maximizing the protection of the item.

Regular, everyday items aren’t exempt from this process. We handle the packing of many different breakables daily, such as glass pictures, short, tall, or wall mirrors, as well as electronics.

Wooden crates are made in our warehouses after pickup for one simple reason—we want to make sure that the crate perfectly fits. In case you require storage services, the item will remain in the crate throughout the whole shipping process.


This is possibly the part that interests you the most. Since we use additional material that doesn’t belong to our standard and full packing services, such as packing boxes and material for wrapping furniture pieces, there’s an expected additional cost. The price for wooden and cardboard crates is generated based on the dimensions of the item.

Expensive things must be crated, while everyday items can, but don’t have to be. If you still choose to put them in cardboard crate, that will come at a lower rate. If you’re not 100% confident that you took the right measurements of the item, feel free to schedule a free home estimate, and our agent will provide us with the necessary information.


Insurance is included for every move by default, but the amount provided per claim based on minimum liability is very small – $0.60 per pound damaged. Since we want our clients to be satisfied with every possible outcome of their move, we also offer premium insurance. We strongly recommend going with this option if you have any antique or high-valued items along with crating. If you wish to insure high-valuable items over $1,000, crating might be necessary to ensure protection and insurance eligibility.


International moving is already stressful enough for you to have another worry on your mind. Even though custom crates do come at an extra expense, they also go a long way, just like your fragile or expensive item will. Compared to its value, the crate’s cost seems insignificant, so don’t hesitate to call our team of relocation specialists and ask more about this service.

Give the I Love Moving crew a call, and we will walk you through every part of the crating process.



I want to express gratitude to the employees of this company. We were pleased also to see neatly packaged and labeled property transferred to the long-term storage, to be moved to our new destination at a later date. The movers did not slow down themselves, did not say any extra words, but simply were doing their job. And they performed the job very professionally and carefully. Now, with your help, we are already in the new office across the ocean!

For the moving, our neighbors advised us to get acquainted with the services of this moving company’s site. We carefully looked at it. We were moving from 4-bedroom apartment to 2 different addresses in Japan. Along the way, we had unreal number of old furniture, which required to be disassembled and to be taken away to the trash container. All the work was done quickly and accurately. The movers neatly packed needed furniture and then they transported it to the truck on special equipment. When we were receiving delivery at the new place, the guys began to unpack ahead of us and mounted all our furniture as asked. Everything was done correctly, technologically. I am pleased with the result and would recommend this company to anyone who need to relocate quickly and accurately.

I want to thank I Love International Moving for trouble-free, very professional and precise moving of all kitchen items and other furniture from the 3Br apartment out of country. This was my first experience in transportation of items under the contract with the company to an international destination! Quality of service was good for money paid. They have options to ship by sea or air, and they explain you all step in detail. I also want to thank the movers for harmonious, clean job with disassembly / packing / loading of the furniture: you did everything quickly and accurately, and even with the positive mood! Thanks to operator for the care and overall coordination of the move! Also special thanks for on-time delivery.
